Words on love from Jack Kornfield and others...
Love is a blessed mystery. It is like gravity: vast, invisible, the unstoppable force that connect all things.
We long for this love. We long to love and to be loved. Wherever we are, we can awaken to it.
Love is generous without need. It is fulfilling in itself. It is courageous. Love offers kindness with no requirement for return.
True Love is trustworthy. No matter what happens, we can still love.
Love is based on our capacity to trust in a reality beyond fear, to trust a timeless truth bigger than all our difficulties.
Love is without demands.
Sometimes love means standing firm. Sometimes love means letting go. Sometimes love means letting be.
Love blossoms whenever we step beyond our fears and rest in the generosity of the heart.
Love creates a communion with life. Love expands us, connects us, sweetens us, ennobles us.
Love springs up in tender concern, it blossoms into caring action. It makes beauty out of all we touch. In any moment we can step beyond our small self and embrace each other as beloved parts of a whole.
Love is more than an ideal. It is warm, generous, direct, and immediate.
"Dear Mary Ellen, Thank you so much for helping us with everything! We just keep saying that the wedding was perfect! Thanks for making it so! We loved everything about it. You did a fantastic job and it was all so sweet and heartfelt. I really wanted it to be straight from the heart and meaningful to both of us, personally, and it was just that. We're crazy in love, for sure!" Tim & Elise
